Link please?

I think they're on crack. Girardi isn't quick, and he shouldn't be spoken about if your talking about Ovechkin and Crosby.

In fact, neither should Kessel.

nyrcallahan24 07-17-2008 06:53 PM

yay! Girardi! love him!!!!

Prospalous 07-17-2008 09:34 PM

Even though I'm one of the few to sport a girardi jersey, :p, hes got some speed, but not as speedy as someone who should have been put in a category with Crosby and Ovechkin

Sockosensei 07-18-2008 04:37 AM

So they got Dan Girardi mixed up with Dan Jansen; I mean, who doesn't?

It isn't just the speed of their skating , it was referring also to how their skill is suited to the new NHL with no hooking holding etc. . Maybe in the case of Girardi they appreciate his hockey intelligence and skill. At least the writer of the article does even if NY fans don't.
Ranger fans don't appreciate anyone. only looking for the negative in everything and everyone.
I only thought that Ranger fans would be proud to have one of their own players mentioned in the article. I guess I was wrong.
Maybe the whole post should be removed.
The rule on this sight should be only post bad things about our players.

You said it is about killing with speed not skating effectiveness in the new NHL.

Possibly the bulk of us understand that to put Girardi in a class of skating prowess with some of the others is just plain laughable. It's like the quizzes where you are asked to pick the one that doesn't belong.

Blueshirt Brawler 07-18-2008 01:19 PM

Girardi as one of the fastest young players??? I don't see it at all. He's a quality defenseman but I wouldn't group him in with those other guys. That's why the Hockey News sucks. They probably saw him play in one game where he rushed the puck up the ice and now he's being mentioned in the same breath as Ovechkin and Crosby, the last two MVPs of the league. What a joke!

Nich 07-18-2008 01:22 PM

i think they did it as the new nhl skill, not only speed....

FLYLine24 07-18-2008 01:23 PM

Closed. If the OP wants to PM me the link i'll reopen it.
